Cementum lines are regions which, preferably when subjected to histological staining techniques, but sometimes without, can be seen in section under the microscope as sequential dark-staining striae in the cementum of the tooth. Their physiological basis is as yet undetermined, but they appear to represent regions of interrupted or retarded growth of the ostein matrix. A correlation can be found between this interrupted, or retarded, growth and the seasons, one bold line per year being evident in temperate zones and two in equatorial zones.
